Fired Equipment Manager - Todd Hewitt has been with the Rams since he was a 10-year-old ballboy in 1967. “He’d been appointed equipment manager in 1986, succeeding his father, the late Don Hewitt, who’d held the position since 1967.” Last Friday, Steve Spagnuolo fired him because he wanted to move in a different direction. “To hear Hewitt tell it, Spagnuolo brought a militaristic dysfunction to the locker room. He criticized the way Hewitt distributed socks. He questioned the way he hung wall fixtures. He scoffed at him for loading the team plane too slowly. He warned him never to talk back to him.” (Riverfront Times)
